It will be easier to have a peaceful mind if you don’t have too much stuff to worry about. So always look for ways to simplify your life. Eliminate the things which are not essential so that you can focus on the important. So reduce the amount of time on unnecessary enjoyment or time pass activities.Instead of thinking too much of ourselves, we should think more of others. Think of what you can do for others and do it. There is joy in giving which will give you peace of mind. Do not be jealous of others. Stay away from negative conversations, learn to be patient and tolerant of the conditions that come in the way. Every day we face numerous hurdles and obstacles in every way of life and situations that are beyond our control. If we can change them, that’s fine, but this is not always possible. We must learn to put up with such things and accept them cheerfully. In whatever you do, you do not need to be in a rush. Slow down so that you can clearly hear the voice of your heart and intuition.
Forget the past and concentrate on the present moment. There is no need to evoke unpleasant memories and immerse yourself in them for what is gone or happened in the past. Therefore, do not think of the past or the future, we can never recover the past, make good use of present, man suffers because he forgets the present.
